Consisting of 36 long shots, this film tells a story of desire and loss in a digital era. Location scout Sai is working with art director Oom on a film production. Two years later, Oom has left, but she is still on the same project. When Sai’s computer crashes, she loses the photos of an entire year of her life, including ones of Oom. She tries to retrieve them with the help of her old friend Kai. An examination of fragile love and the impermanence of digital memories as well as old urban landscapes, this film won the New Currents and Fipresci Awards in at the Busan International Film Festival in 2012.

A graduate of Chulalongkorn University, Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit is a self-taught filmmaker who has made many short films including Bangkok Tanks (2006), Cherie is Korean-Thai (2010), and Sing Dee Dee (2008). 36 is his feature debut. A freelance screenwriter, he wrote the script for Bangkok Love Story (2007), which was the highest-grossing film in Thailand that year. Nawapol also writes film criticism and is the co-founder of Third Class Citizen, a film and video activist group.

Director’s Statement:
In the old days, when I started taking photos, waiting for the film to be developed was very exciting. I would get 36 photos that often had nothing to do with each other. Often I would not remember what the picture was or why I took it. I would have to create my own narrative to connect the events in the photos, which were sometimes taken months apart. And because my old camera was very simple, many of these photos were blurred or flared. But even these imperfect pictures made me smile because they represented happy moments in my life.

This film is told in a similar fashion, comprising 36 shots that are not directly related to each other. It is like looking at someone’s roll of film and forming a narrative of a certain period of their life.
